Camp among giant redwoods at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park.

Nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park is a great weekend option for Bay Area residents. With approximately 30 miles of hiking trails, the incredible Garden of Eden swimming hole, and proximity to Santa Cruz - this campground is not to be missed! On sunny days, views from the campground allow you to see all the way to Monterey. 

Campers can spend their time hiking, horseback riding, picnicking, and swimming. Keep your eyes peeled for deer, coyotes, bobcats, and steelhead trout. The campground offers picnic tables and cooking areas, toilets, potable water, and showers. Campground reservations can be made here
